Make Money from Your Website - How to Write an Ebook for Profit

If you don't consider yourself to be a writer, you may be tempted to skip this article. But wait! If you have some information and knowledge to share, you CAN learn to write an ebook and sell it for profit.

Recommended - Mila Sidman's - How to Write and Publish a Profitable eBook in just 5 Days.

What is an eBook?
An ebook is a book in electronic format. One of the most popular formats are PDF files, but there are others. Readers can receive ebooks by email or download them off the Internet.

Why Should You Write an eBook?
The electronic age has made it possible for anyone to become a published author. You don't need to hire a publisher or pound the pavement trying to get your book published. You can publish and learn how to write your ebook yourself at minimal cost.

Why Would People Buy an eBook?
Although some people are still weary of purchasing a book that is not in traditional paper format, ebooks are a booming industry. People will buy an ebook when you are offering information not available elsewhere or if they need the information immediately.

What Should You Write About?
First and foremost, it must be a topic you are knowledgeable and passionate about. After that, consider the following in developing your ideas:

~ Information that is time-sensitive or subject to change will likely do well in ebook format. For example, an ebook on Search Engine Optimization is likely more suitable to electronic format than print. Search engines change all the time and by the time a book is put into print, the information may be outdated.

~ Information that satisfies an immediate need or impulse should sell well. This could be an ebook on soothing a colicky infant, for example.

The above two points are not essential to writing a successful ebook, but will certainly go a long way to help in your plan on how to write an ebook.

Do Your Research
Don't start typing until you've done your research. Will people be willing to pay for your information? Is it readily available elsewhere? If it is, could you approach the subject to reach a particular niche?


Putting Your eBook Together
The most common format for ebooks is a PDF file. There are other software packages with wonderful features that you can purchase to create ebooks. However, these often don't operate on certain operating systems or have other limitations. Click here for tools to help you sell your ebooks.

How Much Should You Charge?
It really depends on the quality of the information you provide. You could have a long or short ebook, but that's not the ultimate decision maker. Have a few friends or colleagues read the ebook. Make sure they are interested in the topic and ask them how much they would pay.

Also, have a look at your competition and see what they are charging. You can purchase a few of those ebooks to see how you compare.

How Do You Sell Your eBook?
1. First off, get a website. You can put the ebook on your existing website if it relates to your current website topic. If it isn't related, start a new website to maintain focus on your topic.

2. Establish yourself as an expert in your ebook's topic, recommends Tracy Lyn Moland, self-published author of Mom Management.

- Write and distribute articles that promote your ebook in the byline. For a list of possible places to submit your articles click here.

- Participate in forums, moderate chats or run online seminars on your ebook's topic

- Solicit interviews from other related websites, magazines, radio stations, etc. Allow them to read a complimentary copy of the ebook before agreeing to interviewing you. Offer to answer questions from their readers or listeners.

3. Offer a free email course or free ebook teaser to promote your ebook for sale. Be careful here. I have seen a number of people use this technique very poorly, including some so-called Internet gurus. Of course, you don't want to give away all your great ideas, but make sure your free offering does provide valuable information. If there is nothing valuable, how will someone trust you enough to actually make a purchase from you?

4. Encourage those who have read the ebook to write reviews. You can post them on your site and they can also post them on sites where book reviews are allowed.

5. Create a killer affiliate program that people will be dying to join and promote.
